This single-track album is based on guitar drones, that are a result of multiple processing. As it is understood from the title, the piece describes the flow of images, which appear during the sleep - and there are many different scenes in this dream.
And why is it "Hermit's" dream? Well, it is a long story, and firstly the picture on the album cover was the embodiment of this idea. You can see a yellow man, with a fan-like colourful substance coming in or coming out of his crown. At that time, I imagined that hermits, the people, who lead a secluded life, doing different creative stuff, look like that on the picture, from some unknown dimension.
This picture was drawn about a year and a half ago. And lately and unexpectedly a soundtrack for this image was born, which predominately depicts that exact "fan-like colourful substance". Thus, this album appear to be a philosophical and very abstract one, concerning some mental and energetical phenomena. --Kirill Platonkin
